To play a new PC game with minimum video card specs of "Video Card: NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB "

My laptop that has "Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000." It's a chip that's built onto my motherboard. It's not enough at all whatsoever.

The laptop I have is the Lenovo Z570 though. There's a VGA port and a HDMI port... Maybe hooking up a monitor to it? Would that work out?

Like, graphics is the only problem. I'm good on RAM, CPU,etc.

ALSO if the answer is no -you can't go around the integrated sucky graphics,
what would you recommend I do at this point?

Whether you use the laptop's built-in display or use an external monitor, that's not going to improve gaming graphics ability.

If the Intel integrated graphics device in that laptop can't handle the graphics load of gaming, you need a computer that can.
